24 -- A New Character and the Return of Some Old Favorites

No new episode of Prison Break tonight, but a new "24" airs.

The past couple weeks of "24," in my opinion, have been a bit boring (until the last few minutes of each, anyway). Tonight, however, previews reveal we will get the long anticipated (by me anyway) introduction of Ricky (Silver Spoons/NYPD Bliue) Schroeder and the return of former First Lady Martha and her beloved Secret Service Agent Aaron. That's plenty of reason to tune in at 9 p.m. EDT.

(I read an incorrect listing for Prison Break earlier and included it in the original post here. Prison Break is not on my television tonight, but at the Fox "24" site it still says that tonight's episode of "24" follows a new Prison Break. I corrected the post above when I saw that Prison Break was not coming on.) Update: Finally got through to the Prison Break site and it says new episodes will return March 19. Yea.

Whew! Just made it! Been kind of sluggish today--what with it being Monday AND getting up an hour earlier to get ready for work. I'm ready to be thrilled and chilled!

Lorie Byrd:

I saw a listing for Prison Break somewhere earlier tonight. I am almost sure it was at one of the Fox Network sites saying a new episode of 24 following Prison Break tonight. Then I remembered that last week, I think, was either the season finale or the last new episode for a while. I will check the Prison Break site. Anyway, I have corrected the post. Sorry for the let down. House is really good too though.

Lorie Byrd:

I just checked. It was the Fox "24" site and it still says "24" follows a new Prison Break tonight. I will check the Prison Break site in a minute. I just tried and couldn't get through to it. Maybe other fans are wondering what's up.

I was watching that little girl getting ready to do her dive and trying to figure out who she belonged to in Prison Break. And when I saw the guy on the ground bleeding, I thought maybe it was a sniper. I know House is supposed to be good, but I watched it one time, and I just didn't like him, so I don't watch it. Love Bones, though. I do wish they wouldn't juggle shows around so much. Still, I do think it's great that Fox offers new shows after the first of the year instead of reruns.

I love House, but I wouldn't have minded if I couldn't see it until tomorrow night!

Michael Evilcorn:

Ricky Schroeder appeared for about 3 seconds last week. I regret watching that Larry King Live season intro a month or so back. They sort of implied he had a big part, so I guess that starts tonight. Also on LKL, that douchebag Bill Buchanan jokingly claimed the 24 soundtrack had subliminal messages in it to keep it interesting.

Grandfather Bauer is going to be the incestuous father of Josh Bauer, just you watch.

The insane comment was about Martha on 24, not about Greta. Speaking of Greta, she is now doing an Anna Nicole segment -- everything is right with the world again.
